Topic - Getting dropped on the flat

TheGeneralist - on 02 Apr 2012
Need some advice and abuse on why I couldn't keep up with the Tempo road group on Sunday. Two weeks ago on the hilly ride I was fine and got up the hills in good order. This weekend's ride was pretty flat but after 62 miles I just couldn't keep up. I'd done a few pulls at the front but not a huge amount. I just had nothing more when they upped the pace. Average speed at that point was 17.8 mph.

Does the bike make a huge difference on the flat? I can see that a heavy bike would be a disadvantage on the hills but not sure if it matters so much in other circumstances...

Maybe I've answered my own question.... time for a new bike.
